Show loved ones you care this February (Heart Month) with a lifesaving sterling silver heart-shaped medical ID from the Canadian MedicAlert® Foundation.

A beautiful and elegant addition to the MedicAlert product line, it is the first heart-shaped medical ID available for sale at MedicAlert.ca. The soft, delicate design offers a subtle fashion twist to the traditional MedicAlert ID.

"As an organization, we always strive to come up with new styles that make Canadians feel good about wearing a MedicAlert ID," says Monica Andrus, Marketing Manager, Canadian MedicAlert Foundation. "If someone you love has a chronic medical condition - and appreciates classic jewelry design - this is a meaningful and beautiful gift," adds Andrus.

Most leading health organizations recommend that people with chronic medical conditions wear a MedicAlert ID. In fact, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada recommends that Canadians living with heart conditions wear a MedicAlert ID as part of their emergency health preparedness plan.

The MedicAlert heart-shaped ID is made of hypoallergenic sterling silver. Available for purchase at MedicAlert.ca, the lifesaving medical ID is engraved with your vital medical information and personal MedicAlert ID number. Every MedicAlert member has access to the unique MedicAlert 24/7 Emergency Hotline that gives paramedics access to a patient's medical history quickly in an emergency situation - particularly if the patient is scared, confused or unable to speak for themselves.

With Valentine's Day soon approaching, the MedicAlert sterling silver heart-shaped medical ID makes a perfect gift for a loved one who has heart disease, a serious allergy or any chronic illness. To purchase it or to browse the more than 100 different ID designs to suit everyone on your Valentine's list, visit MedicAlert.ca. The sterling silver heart emblem starts at $89. Best of all, every purchase supports MedicAlert and its lifesaving mission to protect Canadians.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
